Free Library of Philadelphia
The mission of the Free Library of Philadelphia is to advance literacy, guide learning, and inspire curiosity. Its vision is to build an enlightened community devoted to lifelong learning.
The Free Library has completed an ambitious strategic plan that will guide its work through 2017.
Hot spots bring computer access, classes, and the internet to neighborhoods throughout Philadelphia. Each Hot Spot includes computers, a printer, and all necessary broadband equipment, as well as a reference collection of Free Library materials.
Hot Spots are staffed by computer assistants trained to provide you with guided instruction as well as open-access computer time.
